Ohh what a weekend! The big matches just seemed to keep coming and as well as that the MLS kicked off too, which means it’s time to catch up on the best boots there. Read along, because we’ve got a good one today.
Serge Deble (Viborg FF) - Mizuno Morelia Neo
Here at Unisport we have some serious love for the Mizuno Morelia Neo and it looks like that’s something we have in common with Viborg FF’s Serge Deble. The Ivorian striker rocked a different pair on each foot, which isn’t something you see every day and especially not with boots this good. By the looks of things they aren't the Made in Japan version though, so there's room for an upgrade.
Cristian Maidana (Houston Dynamo) - Umbro Medusae Blackout & Umbro Medusae Deep Cobalt/White/Fiery Cora
The MLS restarted after it’s seemingly endless break and the first round of games definitely delivered in terms of boot spots. Despite scoring in them during the first half, Cristian Maidana couldn’t seem to decide if he wanted to go blackout with his Umbro Medusae and switched. On the one hand I really like the launch colourway, but on the other, the Houston kit and blackouts just look so good together, so I definitely understand his dilemma.
Ignacio Piatti (Montreal Impact) - adidas Copa Mundial (Extremely customised!)
Now this one took us a little while to figure out, because the custom job is so extensive. Upon further inspection Ignacio Piatti turns out to wearing a pair of Copa Mundial, where the three adidas stripes have been removed, the boots blackouted and then finally embroidered on the heel. You don’t go into this much effort for a pair of football boots unless you really love them. Respect from here!
Marvell Wynne (Colorado Rapids) - Diadora DD-NA 2 GLX White/Black/Fluo Yellow
Shoutout to anyone who played FIFA Ultimate Team in 2012 that remembers this guy! Not sure if he is still rocking that 96 pace as a centre back, but either way his boot game is on point. The boots actually having a new generation out, but Marvell Wynne started the new MLS season in a pair of Diadora DD-NA 2.
Memphis Depay (Manchester United) - Under Armour Speedform ‘Tutti Frutti’
Inspired by the millions of tulips that cover the landscape in the Netherlands during spring, Under Armour presented a new Speedform for Memphis Depay, which he dedicated to Mother’s Day. The colourful boots unfortunately couldn’t help United to victory, as they lost to West Brom.
Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester City) - Precision Schmeichology Negative Lite Limited Edition & Nike Tiempo Legend 6
Leicester seem unstoppable at this point and that’s in no small part thanks to this man! In the game against Watford lots of things caught our attention with Kasper Schmeichel, but it was first and foremost his gloves, which are a Limited Edition pair of the new Negative Lite-gloves from Precision, made in the colours of the Danish flag. On top of that he has changed back to coloured versions of the Nike Tiempo Legend, after a stint in whiteouts. Might have been looking for a more lucrative contract, which his performances certainly warrant.
Ki-Sung Yueng (Swansea) - Nike Hypervenom Phinish Blackout
To my recollection Ki-Sung Yueng usually plays in Nike Magista Opus, but it looks like he is looking to try something new now. In any case the South Korean midfielder rocked a pair of blackouted Hypervenom Phinish boots, both against Spurs last week and in the midweek game against Arsenal.
Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) - Nike Mercurial Superfly IV Bright Mango
We featured Ronaldo in last week's boot spots too, but after a game like that how could we not have him in again? Four goals and CR7 continues record of always scoring against Celta Vigo. He seems insistent on not playing in his Quinhentos boots and it’s looking like he might not even use them. A little disappointed in that, but congratulations to him for reaching 350 goals for Real Madrid faster than anyone before him.
